Broads Tours - Day Boat Hire

Book Tickets Online


Explore Britain’s magical waterland at your own pace. Take to the helm and hire one of our fantastic day boats or day cruiser on the Norfolk Broads. Our Wroxham day boat hire allows you to independently explore the beauty of the Broads at your own pace and in your own style, from the perfect starting location. Broads Tours require at least two adults on our Day Boats (at our discretion we may allow one adult with a child of 14 years or over). Pets welcome on all of our day boats. Day boats available by the hour up to a full day.
